Marijuana Can Court Sexual Dysfunction

 

A recent study by Rany Shamloul, a researcher at the University of Ottawa and Queen´s University in Canada, suggests that marijuana could cause sexual dysfunction.

Shamloul said that he found receptors for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in the smooth muscle of the penis from study participants and rhesus monkeys. It is known that THC has an "inhibitory effect on the muscle".

According to The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, about 162 million people around the world consume pot annually.

  Key word being CAN  
 
Eating CAN lead to choking.
Driving CAN lead to dying.
Love CAN cause temporary insanity and murder.

Its no secret that I love to toke but for me it actually increases sexual desire and passion. I think if someone already has some sort of predisposition (physical or mental) to sexual dysfunction, he is likely to show signs of sexual dysfunction on THC.

  Then  
 
there is a choice: either sex or marijuana.

Not that I don´t think it´s silly, but by your logic, cigarettes CAN cause lung cancer. They aren´t guaranteed to! I guess that makes them OK, yea?

  You´d be suprised  
 
Pot can help in the sack!

That "chill out and enjoy" attitude can lead you to being a more attentive lover taking more notice of what she wants and can make you more reactive to her movements (for a change). Lets’ be honest fellas, how many of us just jump on top and shout “catch” come “squirt time”?

….Believe! It’s from experience that I speak ;)

  Not advocating  
 
but a shot of whiskey or two can fix that.
Fix it all night long actually.

  This is MisInformative  
 
Anyone who would possibly make this statement has obviously never embibed THC.

What is missing from this report is a very important fact that THC enhances sensory perception to almost double its normal levels. Images appear twice as colorful, sounds are twice as melodic and flowing, Smells are tripled in their aromatics, taste is almost quadrupled (ever hear of the munchies? This is why), and feelings of touch are greatly enhanced, especially those of a sensual nature.

Even if THC exhibits a small possibility of this proposed effect, the sexual benefits of smoking marijuana far outweigh the potential side effects.
